If you export to draw, drop the file back into artworks, select and 
completely ungroup you will find that your original two shapes have 
been converted to 14 shapes and 34 shapes for top and bottom  

In the case of the top shape there is one big shape and 13 tiny shapes 
which are shaded.

The bottom 34 shapes fare rather better. If you magnify the shaded bit 
you can see what is going on.

If you make the shaded portion a bit bigger it does show up in the 
draw file.
